|Ann||Riggs||Kenya||A||Friends Theological College||Our students in missionary study are connected closely with local missions, churches and other organizations in the mission context so that they learn from both the teachers and coursework at college and on-the-ground missionaries. Our Kenyan students have been allowed to stay within the United Nations refugee camp for missionary ministry there because we have built a relationship with a church within the refugee camp and with the UN authorities.||How to make improvements in training students to grasp and respond effectively to wide differences in cultural and life experience. To some understanding such differences and working productively with these in ministry comes so easily but for those to whom it is a challenge we are sometimes at a loss to know how best to help them learn the needed ministry skills.||http://www.missionarytraining.org/mt/index.php/contact-the-imtn|

I graduated from the Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-Ife Osun State Nigeria with Master of Architecture (M.Arch) in 2004. Then I proceeded to Jos the same year through the Nigerian government’s program that mandates every university graduate to serve the country for one year; National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). In 2005-2006 I was trained at the Nigeria Evangelical Missionary Institute (NEMI) Jos Nigeria for cross-cultural ministry. In 2006 I joined the Nigeria Evangelical Missions Association (NEMA) as a mobilization staff. NEMA is a coalition of about 134 mission agencies and mission sending churches across the country, and NEMI is the training arm of NEMA. I served as the mobilization assistant to the NEMA Executive Secretary from 2006 to 2011. Then in February of 2011 I was reposted to serve as the principal of NEMI. This is what I do till date. I am married to Lydia and we are blessed with two girls; Mary 7 years, and Ruth shall be 3 by May 2015.|

It is a one year, full-time, intensive course. Integrated curriculum - theological/missiological; theoretical/practical; community life and service. Our strongest point is integrating Biblical-theological bases with missiological application and reflection.||How to better integrate the training experience.

Jon and Dawn have spent much of their marriage serving together in Peru, Mexico, Argentina, Canada and the USA, where they have focused on developing ministry training programs and materials. A major portion of their time has been dedicated to founding (1995) and working with the Centre for Cross-Cultural Ministry Training (CCMT) in Cordoba, Argentina—a centre dedicated to training missionary candidates. They have prepared and published several basic courses on missions in Spanish and English, including World Mission, Working Your Way to the Nations, and Integral Ministry Training Design and Evaluation. Jon worked for the World Evangelical Alliance for 20 years before resigning (2011) and founded GoGlobalNet.org, a ministry focused on helping Latin Americans missionaries along an international “pathway” to service among the unreached peoples of the world.

|Felipe Jinsuk||Byun||Korea(R.O.K.)||AS||GMTC(Global Missionary Training Center)||GMTC training has been designed to train Korean missionary candidates. The following are some of the strengths in terms of training Korean missionary candidates. First, it focuses on training the whole person. It will not only help them to understand themselves, but also to understand others with different perspectives. Second, it focuses on helping them to be better cross-cultural missionaries. It will include life and work on the mission fields. Third, another important strength is that GMTC emphasizes a communal living type of training in which trainees including couples and their children with some singles experience a change of attitudes and character, as well as learn various theories in missions in classes. Fourth, perhaps the foremost important strength is that GMTC has a group of dedicated trainers (tutors) who have concentrated on missionary training for an extended period with extensive cross-cultural experiences in various contexts. Fifth, if I were to mention one more strength of GMTC, it would be the close relationship it has with many local churches that support it both financially and spiritually. Especially, almost every lunch at GMTC is prepared by volunteers who come from various local churches to serve and interact with our trainees.||1.Do a training program(s) that trainers are engaged in have a comprehensive training plan or philosophy? 2.Do the training program(s) that trainers are engaged in have a good strategy for recruiting new missionary candidates? 3.What kind of training is offered to the trainers and what quality will one look for in them?||http://www.missionarytraining.org/mt/index.php/contact-the-imtn|

|Bruce||Dipple||Australia||WP||Sydney Missionary and Bible College; Australian College of Theology||The key area in recent years is the role of the local church in mission training, and how that relates to the roles of mission agencies and training institutions. I challenge, from a biblical and a global reality perspective, the thinking of many local churches that mission is handing people over to institutions for training and to agencies for ministry. In some ways I have developed Jonathan Lewis old DACUM process specifically for the local church, and particularly for churches in a multicultural context like Australia. The input to the churches is through writing, conducting seminars in churches, Bible teaching, conference speaking, etc. The outcome is a new level of participation by some churches with institutions and agencies, and a change in their thinking where they now see the mission activity as an extension of the ministry of the local church.||Apart from the area noted above under strengths, I have two other areas of particular interest. (1) The nature of different culturally appropriate learning styles and their impact on mission training, particularly in a multicultural training context. For example, when you have responsibility to teach a course on some aspect of mission and the class is made up of people from East Asian, European, and South Pacific cultural backgrounds, what does that say to how you teach. This becomes even more complex when teaching in an accreditation framework. (2) The role of a biblical theology of mission, not just as a subject per se, but as a contributor to the diverse areas of mission training. To put it another way, the role of a strong why in producing clarity of what and how. It addresses the integration of biblical theology with ministry and practice.||Great to see you are getting the IMTN going again! I am coordinator of the Australian Missionary Trainers Network, a ministry of our national WEAMC mission body, Missions Interlink Australia. We have about 70 members from formal and non-formal contexts, and the main thing we do is produce a quarterly newsletter of ideas and resource links. I will pass on news of what you are doing to all the members. I also work part time with the main Australian evangelical accreditation body, the Australian College of Theology, as moderator for all mission subjects taught in member colleges. This gives me another personal link with most Australian mission trainers working in an institutional environment.||http://www.missionarytraining.org/mt/index.php/contact-the-imtn|
|Daron||Himstedt||Australia||WP||Crossway Baptist Church||I have 3 major ones 1) I used to be OMFs International Facilitator of Short Term Ministries. I would consider myself an expert in short termers and utilising them in long term ministry successfully. I have trained over 900 short termers and 50 coordinators. In 2004 OMF led a session at the South Western Consultation in Chiang Mai Thailand. The session was attended by 34 different mission agencies. At the end of the session 34 agencies asked for our materials as we were miles in front in terms of training for this ministry. 2) I am a Kairos trainer. Kairos (www.kairoscourse.org) is a grassroots missions course ideal for mission mobilisation. I am a State coordinator and National team member. In 2 years we have gone from one church (mine) one course to 9 courses and 5 churches involved. This number will expand again in 2013. 3) I also was a Church Multipication Movement trainer with OMF. My specialty was helping leaders develop the Master(s) Plan. Developiong Vision, Mission, Values, Strategies, Goals etc towards seeing a people group reached. There are are 5 movements that I know of in SE Asia as a direct result of this complete package of training. I was one component of it. This ministry has moved out from under the OMF umbrella and has gone International.||Mobilisation Short Term Teams Church Planting Ideas for Churches||http://www.missionarytraining.org/mt/index.php/contact-the-imtn|
